Pappy Van Winkle Sighting in "Crazy Stupid Love"

So I promised to bring you this sighting all the way back in June and have finally gotten around to it.  Several people have reminded me about it in the interim but when it comes to sightings, the scotch appearances always have first priority.

The clip below has something for both the ladies and the dudes as it features Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in the sack.  The couple is sharing a glass of Pappy Van Winkle 20 year old bourbon and the bottle is featured near the end.  The scene takes place at around the 1:12 mark in the movie.

The Very First "Gossip Girl" Scotch Sighting

It has taken six seasons but I finally have a scotch sighting from Gossip Girl.  I've never actually watched a single episode of the show.  To be honest, it has always been known as that show I hear from the other room when my girlfriend is watching TV.

Apparently there have been many sightings throughout the series but no specific brands were visible until now.  Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) consumes copious amounts of single malt scotch in several episodes but, strangely enough, it was none other than Dan Humphrey (Pen Badgley) sipping Black Label at the bar in this scene.  The sighting takes place 39 minutes into episode three from this season entitled "Dirty Rotten Scandals".

Thanks Lorraine (aka @CupcakeCuzin) for the tip!

Glencallan Sighting in "Sons of Anarchy" (Part 2)

Here's the second Glencallan clip from Sons of Anarchy.  This one is from episode 5 of the latest season entitled "Orca Shrugged".  This scene is a little longer and a lot funnier than the previous one.  The Glencallan shows up about half way through the episode.

Another big thanks to my pal 3manquartet for sending me this sighting.  It's actually the first sighting I've ever received via text message.

Glencallan Sighting in "Sons of Anarchy" (Part 1)

It has taken five seasons but I've finally gotten around to watching Sons of Anarchy thanks to a tip from my friend Steve (aka 3manquartet) on Twitter.  Steve hipped me to a Glencallan sighting from episode 5 of this season but I also noticed a brief appearance in an earlier episode.

The Glencallan has popped up in several shows over the years and is easily the most popular fake scotch on Earth. Click here and here for some previous Glencallan sightings.  This scene takes place about 4 minutes into episode two.

Does anyone else think that the bottle bares an uncanny resemblance to Glenmorangie Madeira Wood?

Richard Gere Drinking Macallan 25 in "Arbitrage"

Here it is, folks.  Our 200th post.  If you had told me back in April 2011 when I started this site that there would be this many scotch sightings out there I wouldn't have believed it.  I had planned on posting one or two each month, but thanks to the vast online whiskey community (especially the Scotch Cinema Twitter followers) the site averages about a dozen per month.  Big thanks to all who contributed and please keep 'em coming!  Special thanks to Tonya Kucic for submitting this tip to our Facebook page.

The clip below is our first ever 25 year old Macallan sighting.  It takes place about 20 minutes into the 2012 film Arbitrage when Robert Miller (Richard Gere) pours himself a late-night glass to unwind after a stressful day at the office.

Balmoor in an Episode of "The Defenders"

The Defenders is a legal comedy-drama set in fabulous Las Vegas.  It actually seemed like a pretty decent show but unfortunately it was cancelled after 18 episodes back in 2011.  I was looking forward to a second season.  Too bad it doesn't exist.  Speaking of things which look decent but don't exist, the characters in the clip below are drinking Balmoor!

About 26 minutes into the third episode, Nick (Jim Belushi) pours a glass of Balmoor "Single Highland Malt" for his partner Pete (Jerry O'Connell) while discussing a dilemma Pete has gotten himself into.

Big thanks to Olumide Ijiks For submitting this sighting on the Scotch Cinema Facebook page.

"The Last Bottle of Single Malt in Chicago"

Had to post this quick clip from the series premiere of NBC's Revolution.  The particular type of scotch isn't mentioned but the show itself is pretty amazing so far.  Each episode uses flashbacks (similar to those in Lost) in order to slowly reveal the story of the cause of the great blackout as well as the aftermath.

The scene below takes place about 32 minutes into the first episode which aired on September 17th and was directed by Jon Favreau.  Good luck trying to identify the bottle.

Revolution airs on Monday nights and if the first four episodes are any indication, it's just going to keep getting better from here on out.

Scotch Sighting in the Season Premiere of "Dexter"

    Believe it or not, this is actually the fourth post from Dexter.  The previous three were all Glenfiddich sightings and this one is a mystery malt.  Normally I wouldn't include such a brief sighting but this is a great scene so I couldn't resist.

    After a lot of tension and drama between Quinn and Batista in season six, the two homicide detectives finally get a chance to sit down and bury the hatchet at a local bar.  Batista orders a scotch and Quinn gets a vodka.

    The latest episode airs tonight at 9:00.  Judging from the premiere episode last week this might be the most intense season yet.

Louis CK Drinking Black Label in "Louie"

    I recently finished watching all three seasons of the sublimely hilarious sitcom Louie and loved every minute of it.  There was only one scotch sighting in the entire series and unfortunately it isn't very funny.  Here's a funny clip from a different episode lest the clip below discourages you from enjoying this amazing show.

    The Johnnie Walker Black Label bottle shows up pretty early in the season two finale. The scene also features Steven Wright who is one of the funniest and most underrated comedians of all time. Check out the clip below and click here to like Scotch Cinema on Facebook.
